Thankfully, I am lucky enough to surround myself with beautiful colors and beautiful fibers at http://www.contemporarycloth.com/. These metallic beauties caught my eye.
With two teenage daughters in the house, anything pink and green is always welcome and these vibrant colors were a welcome counterpoint to the never ending grey skies.
Since a woman can never have too many bags, I set out to make a simple tote and selected a Butterick pattern.
The pattern was fairly simple to follow. It required craft weight, sew-in interfacing. An inside pocket was sewn to the lining.
It was not long after I began this project that I was surprised to see blue skies and sunshine. We were thrilled to have several clear days in a row, although accompanied by sub-freezing, arctic air.
